Arsenal vs Manchester City – Carabao Cup : Arsenal and Manchester City fight this Sunday afternoon for another trophy, this time the Carabao Cup at Wembley Stadium.
Arsenal is in 6th place of the Premier League with 45 points conquered, thanks to a record of 13 wins, 6 draws and 8 losses.
So far, the Gunners count with 51 goals scored (being the 3rd best attack of the competition) and with 36 goals conceded (being the worst defence of the top 7), which means they have an average of 3.2 goals per match on their matches.
The team led by Wenger has been having very inconsistent results, which helps to explain their position in the league. On the previous rounds, the team from the capital has eliminated Doncaster, Norwich, West Ham and Chelsea.
Man City occupies the isolated lead of the Premier League with 72 points conquered, thanks to a record of 23 wins, 3 draws and 1 loss.
When it comes to goals, the Citizens count with 79 goals scored (best attack of the competition) and 20 goals conceded, presenting an average of 3.7 goals per match (the highest in the league).
Pep Guardiola’s team is making their best campaign of the past couple of years, currently almost having won the Premier League title and having a foot on the Champions League’s quarter-finals,
having only been eliminated of the FA Cup by Wigan, which is a lesser evil considering what they have been making this season. On the previous rounds, Man City has eliminated West Brom, Wolves, Leicester and Bristol City.
Arsenal vs Manchester City – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The Londoner side has already won the Community Shield at the start of the season and they should fight fiercely for this Carabao Cup,
since they are already 7 points away from 5th place on the Premier League, having also been eliminated from the FA Cup and not having an easy path to the final on the Europa League.
City has good perspectives of success on the other competitions, so they will be focused on lifting this trophy and they shouldn’t play much differently from what has been their playstyle so far.
Arsenal and Man City, separated by 27 points on the Premier League, but with identical thoughts when it comes to their style of play, favouring the attacking football.
Head-to-head will be 2 of the 3 teams with the highest goal averages in the league, so I see value on exploring that market, even because their head-to-head record is very clear on that aspect.
This Sunday at Wembley, I expect a great match, with a lot of goals and emotion, in good English fashion.
